You may be intimidated by soldering, but you’re interested in exploring the world of tinkering that only a proper soldering kit can open up. The communities over at Geekhack and Geekhackers have been helping people learn the process for years and the culmination of their efforts is the Learn to Solder Kit, a comprehensive set of supplies designed and arranged by Ming Kawaguchi (mkawa on Geekhack) to be a purely pro-bono tool for education Read More

Folks! I've been getting direct requests to bring this drop back, and I definitely want to! However, we need a bit of time to work out logistics for the next drop. In the meantime, please vote to bring the drop back! It will be a nice kick in the pants for all of us if we can see what the demand looks like. Thanks for your support!

So the flat soldering tip was sticking 3/4 the way out of the corner of the box. I don't know how it made it all the way to my house without getting lost. I assume it was supposed to be in that little bag in the box. :-)
eek! if anyone is missing an iron tip, please let me or customer service at massdrop know and i will get you another one asap. they are pointy little things that like to escape plastic bags.
I believe everything has been received by massdrop as of yesterday and will be ready to ship out shortly!
Quick update for the group. It looks like we have received everything but the soldering irons. We are working to get those in ASAP so we can get these out to you soon! We are currently coordinating on this and will update the group when we have more news.
Once the remaining portion of the order does arrive we will get these out really quickly!
Expect an update from us on 12/15 or sooner if something comes up.

My flat tip also seems to have escaped the box... That and there was no soldering wire in there. Was anyone else missing that? I was supposed to get enough to last a year...now I can't even play with my new kit over the holiday. Waah!
Thats sad to hear, not to worry as we will work to get this taken care of. Please reach out to us at support@massdrop.com and we will make sure you are taken care of.
Quick update for the group. The vendor let us know that production on these will be wrapping up soon! We are still working out the shipment details and will update you all as soon as those are finalized!
Once these are shipped we will prep our warehouse team and get them looped in so that they can get these reshipped ASAP.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 12/9 or sooner if something comes up.
Hey folks!
The order with the manufacturer was placed last Tuesday and production should be wrapping up today or tomorrow. When the west coast wakes up, I will confirm an eta on delivery to fulfillment. Thanks all!

This is expensive. Don't buy. If you're not going to be working in PCB Assembly, then this is an expensive hobby.

This is crazy overpriced. Get down to your local electronics supplier and get a $30 kit.

A $145 learn to solder kit? This is ridiculously overpriced.
My learn to solder kit was $25, from radio shack and had that iron for over a decade. Now I have a Hakko Fx888D and it is all the solder I would ever need.
Once again, you guys are going overboard.
